Unfold You 03:54
spent the day in bed running through my head coming up the stairs i hear your footsteps coming up the floor turn up at the door I can see you smiling underneath that jacket and i’ll unfold you whenever you want to i’ll hold u might be taking a risk but i’m okay with it i’m okay with it staying at your place underneath the bridge laying down to sleep don’t know what time it is wake up in the snow we can smell its cold keep u like a 20 that i don’t let go of i’ll unfold you whenever you want to i’ll hold you might be taking a risk but i’m okay with it might be taking a risk but i’m okay with it

4Runner 03:49
the first time they took me down i went down swinging second time, i didn’t put up a fight i take the keys down from the hook i pick you up from work we stick to the straight roads up the west coast and i feel a part of me slide when the trucks drive by i feel ‘em sway us side to side you’re underneath a blanket on the backseat i’m going station to station on the dial don’t wanna be pretty like a girl i think i’m pretty much your boy you wear a baseball cap all the time and keep a knife in the passenger door *** sleeping behind the wheel pulled over on the freeway 4Runner , stolen plates long, long gone take off a shift for me i’m waiting down the street take all the time you want to come come come *** last time we did it we both knew it hit different lying down across the front seat used to leave you weightless and listless when the trucks drive by i feel em sway us side to side i used to keep u up all night u used to drive when i got tired chorus i think we’re getting close i think we’re getting closer we got this 4runner and we been good together

Changephobia 03:50
i used to think that maybe it was better not to bother to worry ‘bout the things that made me scared about the future but looking back i didn’t want to stumble on a question that might upset the structure of the world in which we lived and... i might delay the outcome when i thought something should happen i might disrupt my own life if it kept a thing in motion i never had the chance to tell you what i really felt but i figured we’d be okay when the dust had settled was it just changephobia that made you scared of the future in front of ya is it just changephobia that makes us scared of doing what we should talking to myself i feel much better than i ever used to before didn’t wanna know what i was thinking didn’t think that i should know used to be afraid of what i felt and what was coming up ahead then i learned i wasn’t so strange nothing i should hide from myself was it just changephobia were you scared of the future in front of ya? is it just changephobia that makes us scared of doing what we should
